Construction is closing one traffic lane on NE 47th Avenue just south of Buffalo Slough during construction hours, 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on weekdays and 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays. During work hours, flaggers direct traffic through the construction area. Both lanes are open to traffic after work hours.
The daytime lane restrictions will last until mid-October. Construction crews are installing a green street planter, new curbs and sidewalks, and a street tree. The work is the final part of a project to connect about 100 homes and businesses that have been using septic systems to the public sewer system.
